    The fantastic 4 of the golden relay


12 August 2021Marcell Jacobs announced that he will return to compete in 2022. The Olympic champion was expected on August 21 in Eugene (Oregon) for the 'Prefontaine Classic', stage of the Diamond League.

It is the cartilage problem of a knee that has led the new Olympic champion of 100 meters and 4x100 relay in Tokyo 2020 to have to close the 2021 season prematurely.

The resentment, of which the sprinter had already reported in Japan after the relay, emerged on the occasion of a classic leg (soft training) carried out yesterday afternoon on the Acquacetosa track in Rome.

The return to competitions of Marcell Jacobs, Italian record holder with 9 "80 (time trial run in the final of the Games), is expected in 2022. It remains, of course, to be defined whether the Brescia sprinter coached by Paolo Camossi will resume with indoor competitions - it is reigning European 60-meter champion - or take a longer break to focus on the outdoor season which will experience its highlight in mid-July 2022 with the Eugene World Championships in the United States.

Right in the Oregon town, Marcell Jacobs was supposed to hit the track on August 21st at the 'Prefontaine Classic', a stage of the prestigious Diamond League which is also linked to its technical sponsor.
